After my first attempt of the night resulted in me drinking more whiskey and not getting any tears from the bears in Illinfrik, I decided to head to the second bookmark. A drake, by the name of “CowboySmittey”. He not only watched me steal from him, but invited a Hurricane. I figured the cane would blow up my salvage ship fast, and I could return to practice on a cane, but he didn’t.
They warped to the next room in the mission, and forgot his Hobgobling II drones (300k selling price in market.) So, while the Hurricane watched, I scooped them to my cargohold, and opened a conversation with the owner. Below is my unsuccessful attempt at “selling” them back to him. Jetting one at the mission, (which contained ammo in the container), and then “forgetting” it there while I contracted the other 3 to him at a price tag of 5 million. (written in the descr was a price of 500k.) At least he was smart enough to count his zeros and read the contract. ;) Keep in mind, during this, I’m red to him. Stealing out from under him and kiting the rats at the end of the conversation away from his mission plane. Wanted, really bad, for him to shoot, too.
[01:29:51] Gilbert Hamilton > hello sir.
[01:29:56] CowboySmittey > yo
[01:30:06] Gilbert Hamilton > would you like your drones back? you left them when you warped off.
[01:30:27] CowboySmittey > sure
[01:30:38] Gilbert Hamilton > I will contract them to you for 1,000,000 is that ok?
[01:30:51] CowboySmittey > it would if they were worth that much
[01:30:55] Gilbert Hamilton > (total price on market 1.6 million)
[01:30:59] Gilbert Hamilton > they are selling for 400k each.
[01:31:08] Gilbert Hamilton > times 4 = … 1.6 million. it’s a steal at 1 million.
[01:31:12] CowboySmittey > wrong, i buy them for 250,000 each
[01:31:33] Gilbert Hamilton > ok, then send over 750k, and it’s like you get one free!
[01:31:36] Gilbert Hamilton > blame the whiskey.
[01:31:45] CowboySmittey > set up the contract
[01:31:55] Gilbert Hamilton > I have them in my cargo hold, stilly. I’ll be in your room in a min.
[01:32:13] CowboySmittey > ok, give the drones first
[01:32:28] Gilbert Hamilton > um, no. send over half the money first. (round it to 400k.)
[01:32:45] CowboySmittey > lol sorry, my drones, my rules
[01:32:45] Gilbert Hamilton > holy crap how many rooms are you in?! :p
[01:32:52] Gilbert Hamilton > they aren’t your drones yet.
[01:32:55] CowboySmittey > this mish is like 5
[01:33:02] Gilbert Hamilton > not bad.
[01:33:24] CowboySmittey > fine, my money my rules
[01:33:47] Gilbert Hamilton > heh, that’s not how it works. i’ll just use them, after I train for them.\
[01:34:35] Gilbert Hamilton > i’ll take the price of 1 in good faith. 200k.
[01:34:53] CowboySmittey > lol, you’re just gonna sell them for 100,000 on the market anyways
[01:35:07] Gilbert Hamilton > no, I can sell them for close to 300, or use them. no worries.
[01:35:19] Gilbert Hamilton > just figured you’d like them now. I can eject, and you can take.
[01:35:35] CowboySmittey > and you’ll get kill rights on me
[01:35:40] Gilbert Hamilton > not if I blue it.
[01:35:49] CowboySmittey > eject them and blue them then
[01:36:05] Gilbert Hamilton > send 100k first then I blue.
[01:36:49] Gilbert Hamilton > I can see you’re a busy man. I’ll come back later.
[01:36:51] CowboySmittey > I’ll give you 100 and you can send the first blue

[01:37:56] Gilbert Hamilton > I pulled them back, it won’t let me rejet cause of the timer.
[01:38:05] CowboySmittey > lol

[01:41:54] CowboySmittey > i’ll send you nothing, and you can send me 4 drones in a contract
[01:42:05] Gilbert Hamilton > um, no. that’s not beneficial to me, sir.
[01:42:18] Gilbert Hamilton > 500k for the three. sending now.
